    My exhaust has broken, options?

    Exhaust fell off whilst driving home about 2 weeks ago, its come off at the front at the manifold I believe?



    Some flex pipe and its literately torn and hanging on the floor, so the cars going nowhere. Problem is, whilst insurance is sorting out my claim I have no car, so I cant get to work etc.

    Quik-Fit have quoted me 250quid So I was wondering what my options are here?

    If you're getting quoted £250 wouldn't it make sense to eBay "Cybox" for £204/£224 (mid silencer dependant)?

    Unless the part that is buggered makes the above suggestion not a possibility.

    My son Maxx has a flexi he bought for his car, 1.8 astra sport mk4, which he did not use, if someone can confirm this will fit your car you can pm Maxx to sort it! He is out a work at the moment should be in at 5.30pm. Hope that helps. Jx
